HMC #35: SPORTS IN MOTION!: Olympic Boxing

Boxing has been one of my favorite sports since I was a little kid. Although, after watching the Olympics this year it was really hard to decide which sport to chose. I think something really good could come from any one of them.

Here is a look at my reference sheet. I'll probably try and find some more photos and watch a few rounds, that way I get a good feel for what I want to end up with.




My plan going into this challenge is to do a diorama. I wont be trying to capture anyone's likeness, I'm going to try and capture a particular moment.

Just spent a little bit of time watching recordings of this year's Olympic boxing replays. These are some quick sketches I took from the videos. Hopefully these will help me find the right moment to pick for my diorama.

Hey splinter, just wanted to give you a heads up, I'm going to be doing the exact same thing, olympic style boxing. When I saw the theme for this months HCM, boxing was the first thing that came to mind.
Good luck, cant wait to see what pose you pick.

Awesome! I can't wait to see your work as well. I think there are so many great routes to go with Olympic boxing. I've been a little side tracked with other things at the moment, but hopefully I'll have some thing to show here soon.

Good luck, and thank you

No, your absolutely right. I didn't pay as much attention to proportions as I should have. The next pass is definitely going to have to be proportion adjustments. Each time I look at it I feel like the legs are a little short too.

Thank you for the heads up.

I'm not going to lie I can be a little stubborn ("lazy" lol) when it comes to using references. After working with proportions a little here's what I have.

Here is my progress so far. I'm getting ready to pose with zrigging. After the initial posing I'll add details such as wrinkles in the clothes and so on.
